You may ride our chairlift to the top of our mountain to have lunch and dine with a view of Mt. Rushmore just one mile across the valley. Once you have seen that gardens and had lunch, you may take our 2000 ft long self controlled alpine slide to the bottom. At the bottom, we have two 800 ft long ziplines side by side and an aerial adventure park which is a challenge course built up in the tree tops!

When traveling with teens and younger kids it can be hard to find something they will all enjoy. They all loved this ride. Both the ride up on the ski lift and the ride down the slide.

My three boys loved the zipline. It was long and had a good pace. We didn't do the ropes course but it was all over head and everyone seemed to enjoy it. My most adventurous child also did the free fall jump twice. It tightens up pretty quickly and the fall isn't too dramatic. I would recommend this place and... More

We had a great time, my husband and Son loved the Rope Course the best. Worth the money for that. Great place to visit!

I had taken my 11 year old and husband for there first time here they loved it! My husband has a fear of heights and said the chair lift ride up was ok but that he would take the alpine slide down next time as the lift down was much worse. My daughter lived it all and was able to... More

Short tram ride to the top where there are plenty of photo oppertunities. There is a snack shake at the top with food, ice cream and patio seating. Worth the money and is beautiful to see.

While the daughter and man had a great time on the obstacles, there is very little supervision while they are doing the course and what is offered as "supervision" consists of teenagers. One child was injured while we were there due to the lack of supervision and guidance. The staff was either helpful or extremely rude, there was no in... More

If you have young kids, they will love going. After a few days of doing in my opinion amazing things. This excursion stop was one of his top things we did. (Gut check for dad...kids like to do this stuff and not just see natural beauty all the time.). 800 feet zipline is the length. It's only about 35 feet... More

The chairlift and views at the top were wonderful. Nicely laid out area at top with restaurant, benches, restrooms, and walkways. The slide was a letdown as there were signs early on saying slow down. We found this to be overpriced for what it was, which is why I'm only giving 3 stars.

The zip line was very limited and not worth the money; the harnesses were very uncomfortable. But the ropes course looked good and the tram was relaxing, with a great view of Mt Rushmore. There is a restaurant/bar at the top of the tram and you have a choice of taking the tram back down or going back down via... More
